The Man in the Mirror

 

The Man in the Mirror

When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for a day:
Then you go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what the man has to say

For isn’t a man’s father, mother or wife,
Whose judgement upon him must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in his life
Is the man staring back from the glass.

He’s the fellow to please, never mind all the rest
For he’s with you clear to the end
And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the man in the glass is your friend.

You can fool the whole world down the pathway of year
And get pats on the back as you pass
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass
